Waiting on Wednesday: 

The Spindlers

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, and is a great way for us bloggers to share upcoming novels we can't wait to read. 

The Spindlers
Title: The Spindlers
Author: Lauren Oliver
Publisher: HarperCollins
Publish Date: October 2, 2012
Genre: Middle Grade

When Liza’s younger brother Patrick’s soul is stolen by the evil Spindlers, spider-like creatures who live underground, she knows she must set out on a heroic quest to the world Below to rescue it.

Ok, so some might be asking: "Dan. As a twenty-something male, your waiting on wednesday is, um.... buh-huh?"

And I would be answering: "Shut your face. Lauren Oliver is straight genius, yo."

My opponent: "But,  this looks like a kids book."

Hero: *Gives a patronizing sigh* "Middle grade."

Jerk: "Um, ok Dan. I'm going to get going now."

And then I would hand them a copy of Lauren Oliver's last middle grade book, "Leisl and Po" and they would get sucked into the whimsical fantasy and shed happy tears whist being whisked away on a heart-wrenching adventure...with a ghost... and then get it. 

And Lauren will be signing at the BEA next month and I REALLY REALLY want a signed ARC of this. REALLY REALLY. 

So what about y'all? What are you waiting on?


  1. i LOVE that cover, and i think you were triumphant mr. hero!

    1. I would have to agree with Vic! Go educate the jerk Mr. Hero, good writing is good writing. And I hope you get that signed copy at the BEA. :)

  2. Oooo! I haven't heard of this one yet. You totally need to stalk Lauren Oliver and get a signed ARC! It is now your official mission.

    You get extra points if you gush on her. ;-)

  3. Hehehe! You always make me laugh. Way to tell it to Mr. Jerk! Also, I am waiting on FINALE (the last in Becca Fitzpatrick's Hush, Hush series). *sigh* Why must I wait so long??
